A big smokey, peaty Scotch with excellent balance. The complexity evolves with time, revealing layers of flavors. Really good stuff and the 10 year is a great buy!
A smooth, very smokey flavored scotch. I compared, in a side-by-side taste test the 10 year old and the 18 year old, and could not tell the difference. So for my money the 10 year old is a better buy.
im new to Scotch Whiskey and I've only had a few but it was amazing. smelled like a camp fire from my childhood. it was smooth and had an amazing smokey after taste. for the price, i recommend this for people new to the wonderful world of scotch
This IS the Cask Strength 10yo, yes?
this is NOT the cask strength 10 year bottle. the cask strength has a green stripe on the label. also, it actually says "Cask strength" on the front and has a batch number and bottling date printed on the front

The Laphroaig distillery was established in 1815 by Donald and Alexander Johnston. The Johnstons who founded Laphroaig were from the Clan Donald and are likely to be from the MacIain of Ardnamurchan branch of the clan. The family anglicized their name to Johnston
The distillery was sold to Long John International in the 1960s, and subsequently became part of Allied Domecq The brand was in turn acquired by Fortune Brands in 2005, as one of the brands divested by Pernod Ricard in order to obtain regulatory approval for its takeover of Allied Domecq. Fortune Brands then split up its business product lines in 2011, forming its spirits business into Beam Inc.
